Age Spots / Brown Spots / Sun Spots

Age spots, also called brown spots, sun spots, or liver spots, are small, dark spots on the skin. They are flat, not raised, and they usually appear on the arms, hands, face, shoulders, chest, and other sun-exposed areas.

Age spots are most common in Caucasians and individuals over age 50, though they can also occur in other ethnicities and younger people who spend a lot of time outside.

Recommended Treatment:

Age spots are harmless, but their appearance can be bothersome. For cosmetic reasons, individuals can receive skin treatments to lighten hyperpigmented skin. Dr. Bitter recommends his FotoFacial® or Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser to treat the skin and produce an even skin tone. Regarding prevention, individuals can minimize their risk of age spots by reducing sun exposure and wearing sunscreen regularly.
